some nerdly stuff

i've taken to using a speech recognition package to do data entry. I use it to do e-mail and now blog entries, and it works pretty well most of the time. Except, of course, when I mumble. That makes it difficult to use when I do not want other people to overhear what I had to say. So, like, when sue is in the other room am I and sexually harassing my replacement wife. That's the kind of thing you don't really want to talk about out loud very much.

In other useless nerd news, I have upgraded my server and will be migrating all of the blogs and e-mail over to the new one within the next few days. I have to figure out what will be the first things to move. How fun.

I suppose, of course, this means that I should get off my ass and go to school, even if the speech recognition package will not recognize "ass." (i've gotten "aunts," "ask," and "ash.")

why can't i write funny shit like julie?

[edited: as a stylistic decision i generally do not edit posts, and i don't comment on my own posts. but i've fixed the link tertia complained about. dragon naturally speaking.]
